Effective immediately, Crystalfontz America, Inc is announcing the End of Life (EOL) for the CFA635 family of modules.
The CFA635 is a character based intelligent LCD module built around a Cypress PSoCŪ micro-controller and a Samsung S6A0073 LCD controller. Samsung announced the EOL of the S6A0073 at the end of 2007. After the announcement, Crystalfontz America, Inc began designing a replacement module and planned for continuing to manufacture and support the CFA635 family until a compatible replacement module was designed and available.
|Reason:||As part of our continuous improvement process, the engineering services group at Crystalfontz America Inc. is announcing the End of Life (EOL) to our CFA635 family of modules. This end of life is scheduled to take place at the end of 2012 Q2. |
The CFA635 is being replaced with the first of a new generation of intelligent modules from Crystalfontz America, Inc. This new module is the CFA735 family. The CFA735 family has been primarily designed to be a replacement for the CFA635 family with a number of enhancements / improvements.
|Impact:||This announcement impacts all variants, interfaces, and part numbers that currently use the CFA635 family of modules. |
The CFA635 family is not recommended for new designs.
|Recommendation:||Continue to order and build with the CFA635 as required by schedules. Plan on making transition to the CFA735 family of modules when available.|
